The police are looking for two suspects wanted in connection to two knife-point robberies that took place at subway stations this month.
The first incident occurred on Monday, June 18, when the suspects, a male and a female, approached a 29-year-old man at the Court Square “G” subway station at 9:30 p.m. and asked for a MetroCard swipe before displaying a knife.
The pair then took $140 dollars from the victim’s pockets and fled. The victim was not injured, police said.
Then on Friday, June 22, at about 8:40 p.m., the suspects approached a 30-year-old man on the staircase at the Broadway ‘7’ subway station in Jackson Heights, police said. They then blocked him from leaving and displayed a knife.
The pair took his wallet containing $2, credit cards and ID cards, police said.
There were no injuries.
Both suspects are described as black. The man was wearing a white T-Shirt and gray sweatpants.
The female suspect is approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall, and was last seen wearing a white tank top. She was holding a black bag.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
